. but we need a gang of 51. i've talked with president obama about this. he is extremely committed. i would like to see a number of other things. incidentally, senator durbin deserves every kind of honor and praise for what he has done with the dream act. he will be very important in this. >> good morning, senator. "the washington post" suggested yesterday that you present an obstacle to the passage of gun- control legislation. obviously, you do in a sense. but i am wondering if sort of standard -- the standard practice in congress should yield to what many perceive to be an extremely urgent situation. >> i think it is an urgent situation. that is why the first hearings held by anybody, house or senate, will be by me and my committee in that. i wasn't quite sure who they were talking about when they wrote the article, but i will strongly defend the press to write and print what they want, accurate or otherwise. but the fact is -- and i am not suggesting whether this was accurate or not -- but i will point out that i have a track record of getting legislation passed. some will say that nothi
as this time whether he should criticize or concern the road is going on with obama, criticizing, talk to the supreme court what congress said. that same situation. >> why is that? why is that iraq i think in part actually this just that to close. it has come up wraparound the actual polarization. i think the one thing we can take away from this whole situation is that bullies when. as much as we believe. nothing more. basically he can call people up and humiliate them and bash them, and it does manage you intimidate governments and leaders radical institutions. i think that is a problem. we all feel what could happen. of the -- of 81 should have called what happened a coup. it was, but the fact that no one raised the question of what this meant for their respective the letter. it is not the spirit of the constitution. it was very sad. worse, and this is a government that is very good. always staying a few -- shades of gray, and not the novel, but consistently named supreme court justices violating procedures, and consistently now -- if it comes to an election let me venture a guess, t
talked with president obama about this. i know he's strongly committed to real immigration reform. would like to see the dream act passed. i'd like to see a number of other things and we'll work on it. one of your fellow graduates of georgetown, senator durbin, deserves every kind of honor and praise for what he's done in the dream act. he'll be very important in this. >> good morning, senator. "the washington post" had a piece yesterday suggesting that you represented perhaps an obstacle to the passage of gun control legislation. i'm wondering -- obviously you do in a sense. but i'm wondering if sort of standard practice in congress should yield to what many perceive to be an extremely urgent situation. >> i think it is an urgent situation and that's why the first hearings held by anybody, house or senate, is going to be by me and my committee in that. i wasn't quite sure who they were writing about when i read the article, but i will strongly defend the press right to print anything they want, accurate or otherwise, but the fact is -- i'm not suggesting whether this was accurate or not
in president obama's second inaugural. i know something she would like you to get involved in. she'll talk to us about that and she'll also talk to us about her mom's health and some other things when she joins us. >>> did you notice mark wahlberg had an interesting date? >> date? i don't know that you want to call it a date. >> i'm just trying to do the tease here. >> somebody on the red carpet. >> he is here now. we'll talk to him about that. also he has a new project we want to talk to him about, russell crowe movie. >>> hoda kotb is up early this morning. >> love hoda. love her. >> yeah. >>> we're standing in front of our weather wall. it's filling in. soon we hope to be able to reveal the title of dan brown's new thriller. if you keep it coming, we'll fill it up and give you that title. use the #danbrown today to fill the screen. by the way, how big is the release of a dan brown thriller? he is ranked, his books, as the most read books in the world, up there with books like the bible. >> the bible? wow! >> every tweet is a dot on that board. some people are starting to talk about flor
. there are a lot of americans out there who own guns who think president obama will want to take them away. >> well, that is true. as we talked about before. we're seeing an incredible swelling not only in the purchasing of guns but in the, in nra membership as well. i think that there is an expected, expectation on the part of the administration that the national rifle association's power is going to be quite, formidable and that they are not going to be able to pass everything in their legislative package, which as you mention is going to be outlined in specifics, soon. it will include, an assault weapons ban. it will include restrictions on magazine clips and high capacity ammunition. that is the kind of thing that will be fought hard by the nra. white house doesn't expect an assault weapons ban to pass but it will include it in its goals because they want to include everything in its goals. i think what they're expecting in the end to find consensus on is more like, i said, consensus and cooperation in the area of background checks and screening, before guns are purchased. maybe the closing of
, every time i talk about how our foreign policy should be like colin powell's foreign policy, for five, six years, even before he endorsed barack obama the first time, i would get attacked for associating with colin powell's very conservative with a small "c" realist approach that republican presidents followed for years. it was the weinberger doctrine. it was the reagan doctrine. it was the powell doctrine. and suddenly, it became the doctrine of lefties? >> colin powell is a self-identified republican and has been for many, many years. and with each passing year, with each passing election cycle, the republican party, too many within the republican party, try to further estrange him from the republican party platform, from much of what is said publicly by a lot of republicans. colin powell is also a guy who has the ability and the belief that a lot of republicans -- not a lot -- but too many republicans and too many democrats don't have, he has the ability and the belief to put country ahead of party. and that's unfortunately something that's passe in washington. >> the problem, leig
. >>> everybody is talking about oprah's interview lance armstrong where he finally admitted to doping. get this. the interview supposedly lasted close to three hours. so it's sort of like a regular interview but on steroids. president obama's inaugural parade will feature eight floats including a hawaii float to honor his birthplace and illinois float to honor the first lady's home state and a kenyan float just to mess with republicans. why not? >>> well it's time now for entertainment news. adding insult to injury for tony danza, "the new york post" is reported the danza told fellow first class travelers he caught the flu after he vomited into an air sickness bag. kate upton had a different story saying i found out that lisa marie benson has a phobia of throwing up. it's funny the guy next to her is hung over. she was referring to danza but kate missed reruns of "taxi" and "who's the boss" and didn't recognize him. >>> amanda bynes resurfaced with her cheek piercing. >>> charlie sheen is going to be a grandfather now that his 28-year-old daughter is pregnant. her mother is sheen's high school
. not at all. >> thanks, lisa. >>> the national rifle association is about to respond to president obama's crackdown on guns, the powerful gun rights lobbying group will join us later in this hour in "the situation room." lots to talk about with david kooen. stay with us. ♪ [ male announcer ] some day, your life will flash before your eyes. make it worth watching. introducing the 2013 lexus ls. an entirely new pursuit. >>> let's continue the conversation in our strategy session. joining us right now, two cnn political contributors. the democratic pollster cornell belcher and republican strategist alex castellanos. the president laid out a very am bishops shous plan to deal with guns. cornell, you're familiar with this issue. can he deliver? >> well, i think he can deliver. if you look poll after poll, this is where the american people are. what happened in connecticut was a conscience jarring for americans. similar to what we saw on 9/11 where the world is not the same. americans are hungry for change. the assault weapons ban, the commonsense registration laws, fixing the loopholes, th
president obama has been president is the continual -- a concerted effort to compare himself to president lincoln, a first in his talking about the book that he was reading -- i cannot remember the title of it -- >> king of rivals? caller: now he is taking the inauguration on the lincoln bauble. there is an idea that some callers have made that this president has faced worst consequences or worse situations than previous presidents i think is somewhat absurd. the fact that he is half-black, there is nothing to it. he is the president of united states and is supposed to be president of everybody. unfortunately, i have lost confidence in the politicians in washington, d.c. and i think the people of the united states should continually boat these people out of office on a regular basis until they start doing what they're supposed to do which is represent the people of the united states. we have a democratically elected republic and people need to pull out their history books and find out what that is and realize that when we send them to office, would give them the authority to vote the way
yours. >> mike: and let's talk about another hot button issue. president obama setting his sights on perhaps the next overhaul of the immigration system. and there is already a republican challenge in the works. >> jennifer griffin joins us live with the details. >> good morning, guys. the president has vowed to take on immigration reform. but florida senator marco rubio whose parents were from cuba, accuses the president of poisoning the well, even last minute laws through an executive order issuing work permits and halting deportation just prior to the election. in a wide ranging interview in the wall street journal, rubio explains why the president must embrace immigration reform and outlines what he hopes to be his signature plan. quote, i don't think there's a lot of concern in this country that we'll now get overrun by ph.d.'s and entrepreneurs. i think it's the rhetoric by a handful of voices in the minority, but loud none the less that have allowed the left to create an unfair perception to conservatives and republicans are anti-hispanic, and anti-immigration, and we do ha
, michelle obama did it when it came to health care. she talked about her daughter's bmi, blacking about it, for them to say, you're not allowed in any way, shape, or form or capacity to talk about our children and the impact of public policy, hypocrisy. >> gretchen: michelle always has an opinion about every issue of the day. have a fantastic week. >> take care. >> gretchen: coming up, honey, they shrunk the foot long. subway coming up short. then senator marco rubio says the president doesn't believe in the he second amendment and he should have the guts to admit it. he explains his thoughts. right back [ male announcer ] this year, make safety your top priority and save hundreds with our best offer. get an adt security system starting at just $49 installed, but for a limited time only. that's an instant savings of $250. don't leave your family's safety to chance when you can take advantage of these savings now. call or visit adt.com/tv. both: i had a break-in. man: by the time we called the police, there wasn't much they could do. i felt so helpless. adt quickly called the police. i felt
. and they also revealed yesterday that he did talk to them and he apologized and their work, sans lance, goes on. >> gretchen: the 2012 campaign ended two months ago, but president obama didn't get the memo. in an unprecedented move, he's turning his reelection campaign into a tax exempt group. they will push his second term agenda. that is expected to include clashes with republicans over the nation's soaring debt. gun control and immigration reform. campaign manager jim messina will leave this new group. it has $5.3 million now in the bank. >> brian: if you live in chicago, you may be saying good-bye to those energy drinks. the democratic councilman wants to ban all drinks that contain a high amount of caffeine. that could mean dr. pepper. it would still allow red bull to be sold, since it contains less caffeine than other drinks. the crackdown goes a step further than a previous one that wanted energy drinks banned for people under 21. >> steve: so they will sell red bull in the home of the bulls. >> brian: yes. >> steve: talk about man's best friend, dna collected from a dog's mouth has help
must be fixed. and we must remember when we talk about rights, children have a right to be safe. so i applaud president obama and vice president biden for proactively taking the necessary steps to address this critical issue. it's going to take all of us united, regardless of party affiliation or our differing views on constitutional rights, to stem this tide of violence. more importantly we must take a hard look at funding for mental health services and other services. we must look at sinking technology -- syncing technology to ensure proper and tighter access to firearms. we must place adequate controls on ammunition. bottom line, we must protect our schools, our communities, children and families must be safe. i respectfully ask my colleagues to make this issue of violence a priority and to support our nation's leadership as they work through resolving this challenge which should not be difficult. if we compromise and keep focusing on saving lives. madam chair, i pledge to support you and to support all my other colleagues with the congressional black caucus to make a difficult tas
. >>> also, president obama ready to present his new gun control agenda today, called the most aggressive and expansive proposal in years. how will congress react to it? this morning we talk with illinois congresswoman tammy duckworth and virginia congressman randy forbes. and less of a priority in public schools across the nation, but what is happening to get kids passionate about music that will change their lives. i'm hanging out with swiss beats this morning. what are you guys doing? >> i love it. >>> when you take the family out to a popular restaurant, do you know how many calories in the popular dishes you and the kids are eating? some calories are eye popping. elizabeth cohen in atlanta this morning. good morning, elizabeth. >> good morning, christine. >> making me hungry and not hungry, at the same time. how many calories are we talking about here? >> we're talking in one meal, more calories than are you supposed to get in an entire day by quite a lot. and one of the things i found kind of surprising. we know fast food has a lot of calories, but these are nice restaurants, where
, that there is so little trust that they feel that obama is bent on really achieving conquest over the republicans by the midterms, trying to isolate tea party republicans and not really coming to too much of a deal. you hear the president talk about, well, he'd be willing to make some modifications to the medicare program. i mean, he certainly is not willing to get into a negotiation over that because he thinks it's going to be one-sided. so can just underlines how far apart they are when it comes to any sort of big deal. and the more people i talk to around the hill, people who know the president, that we might be looking at much smaller deals to try to chip away at some of these issues rather than this concept of a grand bargain. >> chuck, we've gotten the new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll. horrible numbers for congress overall and pretty bad numbers for the republican brand. yet paul ryan yesterday coming out and as a leader sort of talking about we may need to be more accepting of the fact that we only control the house. we don't have the white house or the senate. can republicans do an
